James Postle

James started shooting at his prep school aged 11 and continued with small-bore at Brighton College, but it wasn’t until he joined Reading University that he started visiting Bisley. In 1995 James was appointed Shooting Master at Epsom College and enjoyed 13 years coaching teams. He is delighted to be travelling to Canada not only with three of his former pupils but also our tour Vice-Captain, who he persuaded to coach the Cadet Pair one Ashburton; 18 years later AWCL is still helping Epsom teams!

After leaving Epsom, James continued his involvement with cadet shooting by becoming the Director of the British Cadet Rifle Team (The Athelings) and is a Trustee of CCRS. He was Adjutant of the Athelings in 2001, Commandant in 2010 and is looking forward to returning to Connaught to see if he can add to his two Governor General badges. James now works at Millfield School as the Registrar and lives in Cheltenham with his wife Eve.
